Don't Expect The Next Generation Chevrolet Colorado Until 2022

Off-Road

Just after Ford relaunches the Ranger. Let the mid-size truck war forever continue.

Both Ford and Ram considered the mid-size pickup truck to be dead. GM, however, predicted otherwise and its bet paid off big time. Since their arrival back in 2015, the Chevrolet Colorado and its corporate cousin, the GMC Canyon, have more than proven that not all American truck buyers want or need full-size trucks. Aside from the Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier, GM had this truck segment all to itself and buyers responded big time. So when will GM launch the third generation Colorado and Canyon?

According to GM Authority, which first picked up the news from Autoline, the next GM mid-size trucks will begin production in 2022. Because both are expected to sell a combined 100,000 units annually once again, GM clearly isn’t in any rush to mess with a good thing. Heck, the reborn Ford Ranger won’t arrive until around 2019, so GM has time on its side. Until then, expect for both trucks to receive mid-life refreshes to keep them competitive until those successors arrive. For now, GM is gearing up to debut the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra full-size trucks, which could be revealed as early as this coming January at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show.
